I can sort of see why people like Fear of the Dark. Of both of those albums the title track is the only song I could honestly say I like enough to listen to a few times every now and then. My main problem with FotD is it has some moments that go past "meh" and into "it would be embarrassing if I got caught listening to this" bad level


I'm assuming you mean Fear Of The Dark's title track, and not The Final Frontier's? hehe

I like Hysteria by Def Leppard, and I'm not embarrassed to say that I like it, so I definitely wouldn't be embarrassed to be caught listening to anything from FOTD. There are some songs on there which are certainly "iffy" though, let's just say that.


Fear of the Dark is a great album through and through! GIve it a few more listens and eventually it becomes natural to listen to. Although, Fear of the Dark is the best song on the album.

New Iron maiden song ... damn awesome




I have no words... except... \m/


This song was written and interpreted by Attick Demons, a band from Portugal...

No Maiden in it...

Well they will probably never make legendary albums like they did in the 80s but still after Bruce got back in 1999 they haven't made a shit album..


Even The Book Of Souls was awesome. Powerslave FTW though.


More than The Book Of Souls, I think that Brave New World is much more better, even though The Book Of Souls contains some really solid tracks as "If Eternity Should Fail", "The Red And The Black", the title song, "Tears Of A Clown" and "Empire Of The Clouds", for example...

But, you're absolutely right on Powerslave, it's the best Maiden album ever, and maybe the best metal album of all times (at least for me).

About Fear Of The Dark, it's complicated, because No Prayer For The Dying is heavier and more guitars oriented than FOtD, which is too cheesy for me, except the title song and three other songs ("Be Quick Or Be Dead", "Judas Be My Guide" and "Weekend Warrior").

"Afraid to Shoot Strangers" is conspicuously absent from your picks.

I found Weekend Warrior to be one of their worst songs ever (I only dislike Holy Smoke and The Angel And The Gambler more) and imo it's easily the most cheesiest song on Fear Of The Dark.

The Only songs on Fear Of The Dark that I really like are: Fear Of The Dark, Afraid To Shoot Strangers, Be Quick Or Be Dead, Fear Is The Key, Childhood's End and Judas Be My Guide (so basically half the album). Wasting Love is decent and the 5 other songs are some of their weakest they've ever made imo.

Bruce has had some kind words to say about Blazes's material. Maybe we'll see some of it on the 2018 tour? Hoping for Sign Of The Cross or Blood On The World's Hands myself, but I'm not sure Bruce would sound good on the second one. It's the song that was written for Blaze imo

I've been meaning to do this from when I was a teenager, and I finally got around to doing it.......I listened to the first two Iron Maiden albums (With Paul D'Ianno on vocals) for the very first time most recently.....Well, in full. I've truly been missing out, it's truly classic, truly awesome stuff! It's just the vocals are much different from Bruce's. Kick ass

I must admit, I never liked the Maiden material with Blaze (with the exception of 'Man On The Edge' which I've always loved). But I saw Blaze live in my hometown a few years ago and he was fantastic. The Maiden era stuff he played really worked well with his own set and actually encouraged me to listen to the two Blaze era albums again. Whilst I don't think I can ever forgive Virtual XI, I did find myself enjoying The X Factor more.

So I'm just finding out that Steve Harris has a house in my home town (he resides back and forth between Los Angeles, California and Nassau, Bahamas). Robbers broke into his house back in 2013 and stole $8,000 worth of things, it was in the local papers but I swear I have no memory of that news story.

But anyway, the area where his house is is roughly a 40 minute drive from where I live........Fuck that would be so awesome to meet him one day when he's in town.
